In Response to:
Rufus Wainwright?(Tarl Chapman)
OK, who REALLY sang this song on the film??
It was not Wainwright, nor Buckley, nor Cohen. Non of these sound at all like the film version. I did see the credits once, and I think Buckely may be given credit for the arrangement, but not for the performance.
Who did this??
